Advent International is one of the largest and longest serving independent private equity partnerships. Since our founding in 1984, we have invested $66 billion in over 395 private equity investments across 41 countries. While every company is different, our hands-on approach to helping these businesses flourish has remained a constant.
Ours is a long-term business built on trust, and we take great care to protect and enhance the open, honest and inclusive culture that will always define Advent International.
Great businesses are built on the back of many great ideas. That is why we’ve built Advent on solid cultural foundations that encourage open conversations between people at all levels of the firm irrespective of title or background. This respect for others’ viewpoint ensures that differences of opinion are respected and ultimately help drive better collective decisions. Ours has never been a firm of star names or big egos, we recognize that the best partnerships with management are built on trust and mutual respect.
